Erie All Stars

Friday, August 18 @ 8:00 p.m.

Erie All Stars tribute to Fleetwood Mac

The Erie All Stars will once again bring their musical and performance talents to CelebrateErie. After presenting an unforgettable homage to Queen in 2019 on the CelebrateErie mainstage, this year, the All Stars will honor the musical legacy of Fleetwood Mac.

Fleetwood Mac, the iconic British-American rock band that captivated audiences worldwide with their unique blend of rock, pop, and blues, formed in London in 1967. The band experienced various lineup changes but achieved unparalleled success during the mid-1970s through the late 1980s. The group’s core members included drummer Mick Fleetwood, bassist John McVie, and the talented songwriting duo, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

Fleetwood Mac’s discography includes hit songs like “Go Your Own Way,” “Rhiannon,” and “Don’t Stop.” Their landmark 1977 album “Rumours” remains one of the best-selling albums of all time. The Erie All Stars will bring that legacy to life, presenting the show and the sounds of the iconic band to CelebrateErie’s concertgoers.

Flo Rida

Saturday, August 19 @ 8:00 p.m.

Flo Rida

Flo Rida was raised by a single mother in Miami’s rough neighborhood of Carol City, Florida. Music helped Flo Rida stay on the straight path. His father was a talented musician who encouraged his son to express himself through music. Growing up, he was exposed to all kinds of music, thanks in large part to his sisters, some of whom formed a local gospel group. When he was a teenager, he found success rapping in local groups, including 2 Live Crew.

His debut album in 2008, “Mail on Sunday,” featured “Low,” with T-Pain, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Two additional singles from this album reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. His second album featured “Sugar,” which reached #8 on the Hot 100 chart. And “Good Feeling” from his fourth album “Wild Ones,” which reached #3. Flo Rida’s album “My House” includes “GDFR,” which was featured in the movie “Fast & Furious 7.”

Parmalee

Sunday, August 20 @ 8:00 p.m.

Parmalee

The Academy of Country Music’s “New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year” nominee is one of Country music’s most successful acts: the Platinum-selling band of brothers is one of only four groups since 2001 to earn three consecutive Top 10 singles from a debut Country album. Parmalee has supported Brad Paisley and Jake Owen on national tours, in addition to their own tours.

Comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox, and life-long friend Josh McSwain, the North Carolina natives had their first number one country hit with “Carolina.” The band recently returned to the top of the charts with their platinum-certified No. 1 single – “Just the Way,” featuring Blanco Brown, and then with their follow-up single, “Take My Name” from their new album “For You,” which became a multi-week No. 1 Country radio hit. Their latest single “Girl In Mine,” is out now.
